Hainan authorities said on Wednesday that the official surnamed Chen who crashed into seven cars in Haikou killing one of the other drivers, is not a National People’s Congress deputy – contradicting Chen who threatened police officers and said he is a NPC deputy when they asked him to take a blood test.
The Haikou NPC and the Haikou Worker’s Culture Palace dismissed Chen’s claim, saying that he had previously held the post of deputy secretary of the Haikou Worker’s Culture Palace but he was removed from his post one year ago.
It is unclear why Chen was discharged from his position, and Chinanews.com reported that he is now working with an advertisement company.
Zeng Xiong, the head of the Haikou traffic security bureau, confirmed to reporters that Chen refused to comply with the police officers’ request for a blood sample, but he added that Chen did so as he was sure he would faint at the sight of blood.
The police did manage to get a sample of blood from Chen, but it did not contain any traces of alcohol or drugs.
Zeng also said that the police are continuing their investigation into the accident and Chen’s conduct.
